Congrats to Lucas Threlkeld of West Plains winning $500,000 Lottery ticket. Just a note to the wise. I have been where you are right now. please think everything through before claiming your money. Think about your future and forget about your in laws. Success is relative, where there is success...there are relatives. Please dont make the same stupid choices I made. Im paying for my choices for the rest of my life. Dont get a big head either. I lost everything/eveyone important to me because of poor choices. Im sincerely happy for you and may life be breezy for you always

Settle down gold diggers! After taxes, Mr. Threlkeld will most likely only see $12.50 of his winnings.

No kidding. It would be great if Lucas used that money to change his life but my bet is that all the money will be spent on drugs and booze within 6 months.
